RICHARD WRIGHT PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOL CREATES POWERFUL PSA TO HIGHLIGHT NATIONAL "SAVE OUR SONS" NIGHT

-- Leading national nonprofit for the promotion of Responsible Fatherhood, Fathers Incorporated, announces partnership with Richard Wright Public Charter School for first National Save Our Sons Night --

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- On Friday, February 6, 2015, the first annual NATIONAL SAVE OUR SONS NIGHT (NSOSN) will take place. Across the country, various local, national and international partners will be organizing to encourage fathers to find ways to spend quality time with their sons and to model healthy behaviors for them. Organizations from educational, faith-based, national and local nonprofits, as well as individual families and community members will be engaged and mobilized for this historic event. At present, there are 30 organizations (8 national) in 31 cities registered as official NSON partners with the list of participants expanding daily.

In the wake of the protests and activities around the country involving Black males, students at Richard Wright Public Charter School created a public service announcement (PSA) (http://youtu.be/6SlJHPZnyi0) to bring attention to individuals who have lost their lives. The PSA is a riveting testament to how violence and the loss of life affects young men all across this country. "It is a pleasure to see our students give voice to their feelings through this creative process," says national filmmaker and teacher at the school, Janks Morton.

Richard Wright Public Charter School, located in our nation’s capital, is one of the most recent organizations to sign up for NSOSN. The charter school has been recognized on several occasions by national and local media outlets, as well as receiving multiple invitations from First Lady Michelle Obama to participate in White House sponsored symposiums. "Being able to contribute to the National Save Our Sons Night in this manner speaks to what our school stands for and what our youth care about," says Dr. Marco Clark, CEO.

If you would like to join this national movement and plan an activity in your community for our sons, visit www.saveoursonsnight.com for further information and to be listed as a partnering organization.
